'X-Men' Director Bryan Singer Accused of Sexually Abusing Underage Boy

Bryan Singer has been accused of sexually abusing a teenage boy named Michael Egan in a lawsuit filed on Wednesday (April 16) in Hawaii, according to Variety.

The 48-year-old X-Men director is accused of forcibly sodomizing Michael when he was 17 at a house in Encino.

Michael‘s lawyer Jeff Herman also claims that Bryan gave the teenager drugs and alcohol and flew him to Hawaii more than once in 1999.

“Hollywood has a problem with the sexual exploitation of children,” Jeff said in a statement. “This is the first of many cases I will be filing to give these victims a voice and to expose the issue.”

Michael is seeking an unspecified amount in damages for the sexual assault he allegedly suffered.
